Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent option for any site that lures plenty of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting package offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you order it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to function correctly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive website with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your content. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server offered by our company on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full power of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous websites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing data and you’ll note the improved performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven software application you’re using or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you will perceive the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the website. Memcached is being used by plenty of sites, including famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
